      Did I play this wrong or was this a cooler? I must tell you that my image is very loose, I thought he had an overpair. Then I started thinking, damn it, he must have something better than that...but I it was too late as by then it was my turn to call all in.

      edit: I forgot to add stats. SB 14/11 AGF preflop: 4

      Hello MisClick,

      Yeah it's totally fine to go broke there with your mid-pair+OESD+FD. For example we get such an equity if we put him on such a range:
      Equity Win Tie Loss Hand
      Player 1: 55,439% 53,745% 3,388% 42,867% Th8h
      Player 2: 44,561% 42,867% 3,388% 53,745% 77+, JTs, 97s+, 87s, 65s, JTo, 97o+, 87o, 65o

      Therefore it shouldn't be that big mistake to get it in on flop. Even against made straights I guess you getting pretty decent equity.

      Best regards.
